Dear Blogosphere

Dear Blogosphere and loyal followers,

May I call you Constant Readers?  (Probably not.  I bet that’s copyright infringement.  Sorry, SK.)

I am not ignoring you.  Well, okay, I am, but I have a great reason!

I am finishing my PhD thesis under a tight deadline. 

I have very little time for anything else.  Just ask anyone around here.  My husband thinks he’s a bachelor again.

I promise, I’ll be back (with bells on) once I get this behind me.  Close-to-final draft due on Friday!  I have lots of pictures to post and lots of things to write about, once I no longer have this panicky feeling all the time.

I’ll see you soon!

Love always,


  • Lana

    Good luck! We will be here cheering for you to finish on time and with style;-) Don’t forget to breathe every once in a while; it really helps!

    Hang in there! I hope John’s planning on taking you on a vacation when it’s all done!

    Why do we all work better under pressure. Never fails we slide into home base.

  • Ott, A.

    Best of Luck!!!

  • Kelly @ The Startup Wife

    Just found your blog! I’m a grad student too (as was my husband until he left suddenly to take an offer at a startup) and I know all too well how you feel. I hope it goes well! So exciting! (And so much work.)

    Hang in there! You are on the last few miles of the marathon. Go go go.
